This is going to be one of the big-budgeted films of Kalainyar Karunanidhi as his previous films were more off medium-fares. The shooting of Pa. Vijay’s ‘Ilaignan’ has been completed and the entire crew had interacted with media channels for the promotional phase.
Since the entire story is set in backdrops of ship manufacturing arena, they were in pursuit of real place of that sort. As it would take years and years to manufacture a Ship, Thotta Tharani erected a grand set of a ship in Binny Mills. It has been done at the cost of Rs. 3Crores with 700 unit members. It seems that the dismantling process will take more than a week.
Apart from Pa. Vijay, the film has Ramya Nambeesan, Meera Jasmine, Namitha, Kushboo, Nasser, Suman and Vadivelu in lead roles. CM Kalainyar Karunanidhi has handled story, screenplay and dialogues with Suresh Krishna wielding the megaphone.
Plans are to release the film by January 2011 and music in December.
